And just like that it's Monday again.
I had a busy weekend going to Dunelm, Home Bargains and helping @caseyermuller revamp her kitchen!
I finally got the kettle to go with my microwave and I'm in love. It goes amazingly with the geo design and colours!
I got so burnt over the weekend. My shoulder currently feels like an open wound being douced in alcohol everytime I move it, so it's a work from home in Pj's kinda day.
Last weekend had some awesome thrift store finds! I’m in love with this added warmth of wood in my kitchen. Swipe to see the before this was a white kitchen! I might be going to the thrift store again so see what else I can find. Any weekend plans for you?
Kitchen decor tip from @walkinginmemphisinhighheels: New bar stools are a smart choice for adding fresh color and textures to any dining area, especially a white & stainless designed kitchen space . The same effect can be achieved with new kitchen chairs. #safavieh
What is a Transitional Kitchen?
Transitional is the most popular kitchen design in the National Kitchen + Bath Association’s 2019 kitchen design trends. .
👉Clean and relaxed
“Transitional design offers the best of both worlds, blending the textures of traditional with the sleekness of contemporary design,” says Starck. 👉Colors
Since transitional kitchens often open to the living area, designers are opting for smooth features that blend in.
In transitional kitchens, cabinets are usually a light or medium color in painted wood, wood grain or mixed materials.
White kitchens with stainless steel appliances are still king — with frequently contrasting island and perimeter cabinetry,”
Life has kind of resumed normality after last week with my Mumma.
It seems like this work from home life is going to become the norm for most of this year for me as our team can operate and function fully from home.
Don't get me wrong I am loving not having a 6am alarm, but everything else I am over!
This is my shelf above the kitchen sink that I transformed form Silver & glass to matte black
& glass with @makeitrustoleum all surface paint spray. It got very addictive very quickly - but it's amazing!
Here's to all the mothers, grandmothers, and those who care for us like a mother. We're deeming the month of May Mother's Day month! Share the joy of fresh living flowers with someone you love and allow them to reap the benefits for months to come. Anthuriums make a great living decor piece, as they are the world's longest blooming plant! Which color would you choose: pink, red, or coral? *

The windows were a selling point of the cottage for me. They are just so cute. I was determined to keep them all natural wood, we have everywhere else, but this room is just so dark it needed a bit of brightening! There was layers upon layers of varnish on it the sills. I've painted them with #farrowandball #cornforthwhite

We hosted our first Thanksgiving, neighborhood potlucks, a Christmas party and lots of family gatherings around this island. As soon as all this crap is over I’m having EVERYONE over. Here’s your official invite 😉. #thecoulterhome

Tip of the day ✅
Set up your “grocery cleaning station” and have everything ready, before you go out to get your groceries, so when you get home, cleaning and putting things away is easier. Same when you get your groceries delivered.
Since both my boys and husband are at higher risk due to their ashtma right now, we take no chances when it comes to what comes into the house.
When we get our groceries I wipe down all packaging with a disinfectant before putting our groceries away.
For fruits and vegetables, I scrub them for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
I then rinse them completely with clean water before storing to avoid any soap residue.
This all takes a long time, but to help with the process, I now have everything ready before the groceries arrive. I have soapy water ready on the sink, to rinse and wash all the produce, and paper towels ready so I can place clean items on the counter.
I also have my desinfectant spray and paper towels ready by the door to clean all packaging before getting them in the house.
Taking extra precautions with your groceries can hopefully help you lower your chance of being exposed to the virus, especially if you are worried because you live with a high risk family member.
Do you clean all groceries and packages that come into your home right now? How long does it usually take you?
